Rubber meets the road

I’m slowly unwinding certain… nonessential aspects of my life. Cutting off certain relationships, or winding them down rather. I’m still managing IT infrastructure for some failed projects and started transferring domains today. Work was very productive, we actually have some guidance on a few key deliverables. I ran also. This evening has gone pretty good.

“A fool who continues in his folly will soon be wise.” I’ve been listening to more Alan Watts, and this kinda summed up my approach to things right now. One of the things that my freshman year religious studies professor tried to explain about Buddhism was that it was like trying to walk through a concrete wall by not walking through the wall. “The Tao that can be named is not the Tao” kind of stuff.

Basically what I’m saying is that we need to write a Solana program from scratch. I don’t think I’ve yet to do that in any respect, instead, I’ve been reading other people’s’ code and reading unit tests. I have no idea what I’m doing. It’s not even imposter syndrome at this point, we have to deliver.

I’m training my Whoop fitness band, or rather, it’s training me. It’s calibrated to my sleep schedule and has me going to bed an hour earlier than normal. I’m pretty well rested but the key will be to make sure that I stay that way. I ran about two and a half miles this afternoon with my new running shoes. I decided to make it a short run because I haven’t broken them in yet, and I think it was a good call. I’m not sure whether I’ll keep them, they seem too narrow for my wide-ass feet.

Tomorrow is going to be a challenge. Missus has to get up early tomorrow to get her mom to a medical appointment, so that’s going to screw our whole morning. I’ll have to take Elder in a bit later than normal, and she’s already dis-regulated. She had a field trip today and is upstairs whining about one injustice or another.

I should probably take it easy tonight.
